Central and North Burnett Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

MULGILDIE Ho­tel is rais­ing money for the Rex Theatre with a spe­cial Fun Day mar­ket. Start­ing from 7am and run­ning through to 6pm, the event promises a full day of ac­tiv­ity. Many mar­kets have al­ready been booked, in­clud­ing Arthur Ham­blin on site paint­ing, The Honey Man, The Linen Lady, Suzy’s Horse Gear, Rob The Mat Man, Ruth and Roy’s Colour­ful Cloth­ing, Monto High School Cake Stall, The Lemon­ade Lady, Fe’s Es­sen­tial Oils, Hi­malayan Salts, Baby wear, Doonas etc., Mulgildie Rodeo Camp Draft Stall, Plants, Jew­ellery stall, and more. Publi­can Julie South, said they were do­ing this year’s fundraiser to sup­port Project Rex. “We’ve been here for 13 years and al­ways done a raf­fle night ev­ery few months for a char­ity group,” she said. “Stalls are $10 each and ev­ery­thing goes to the Rex theatre, it’s all for the Rex.” Project Rex is a not-for-profit com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion that is restor­ing the old Rex Pic­ture theatre in Monto into a new cre­ative and cul­tural cen­tre. Mrs South got in touch with project or­gan­iser Carly Burn­ham and of­fered to use their raf­fle night to raise money. “We’ve also got raf­fle tick­ets here with a $320 meat ham­per for first prize, din­ner for two at the Mulgildie Ho­tel as sec­ond prize and two large piz­zas as third prize,” she said. Mrs South will also be on hand with her own store as the “Linen Lady.” “I’ve got good qual­ity ho­tel tow­els, sheets, pil­low cases, tea tow­els, what­ever you can think of,” she said. With the mar­kets run­ning most of the day, there will be a dis­play of mo­tor­bikes from 10am to pro­vide a talk­ing point for the event. Any­one can put a bike on dis­play, and with a lot of clas­sic Har­leys and pos­si­bly some Three wheel­ers ex­pected to turn up, it’s a prime op­por­tu­nity to show­case your bikes next to the big boys. Mrs South said the bikes would be a unique hook and pep up the day. “Every­one loves mo­tor­bikes,” she said. Later in the evening from 6pm, there will be a Filipino Night held at the pub, $25 per plate, where mem­bers of the Filipino com­mu­nity will pro­vide au­then­tic tra­di­tional cook­ing. To book a stall or a spot at the table for Filipino Night, call Julie at the Mulgildie Pub 41672242.
